    This is a display model. Bought on ebay as a partial build (hull).
    Finish the hull, eg stern lights, cannons, etc.
    Fitted the rigging, blocks and ropes.
    The standing rigging have over 1000 clove hitches.
    The rigging took weeks, and i now understand the saying "getting to know the ropes"
    I did not make a build blog as it would be very boring due to the build pace.

    This also definitely also gives new meaning to the words." Get Knotted".

    Beautiful job Hillro, shows a man with much patience (and small fingers)😁. Well worth the time taken, not a model to be rushed.
